Thanks, Jac, for correcting the tracklist on this one - was all over the place!
Fine, fine NRPS - goes back and forth in sound between tracks, but ultimately sounds way better than the Dead's show.

its Buddy on pedal steel
this is most definitely Buddy Cage on pedal steel not Jerry..their two styled are very distinguishable from each other.... Buddy joined the band in Nov. 71...So this is 1 of his first gigs with the band.the band sounds tight and crisp...one of the best live NRPS i have found..def worth downloading.

my 2 cents
This IS from Sunday, December 5, 1971 at the Felt Forum in New York City. I was present. The New Riders, with Jerry Garcia playing pedal steel guitar, took the stage at 8 PM and played till about 9:30.
Jac from Tucson has the set list correct with the exception of the spelling of Lochinvar.
The Dead came on at about 10:00 and played till almost 2 AM. Six hours with Jerry that I will never forget!

Not Jerry on Pedal Steel
I'm sorry, rschwz28, but Jerry is definitely not playing pedal at this show. It's Buddy Cage and his clearly distinguishable playing style on the tape. Plus, from conversations with the man himself, he took over in early November, 71.
One hell of a night, regardless!

like this a lot
I thought the sound was fine - even the tune-ups sound good!
Marmaduke sounds in good voice particularly. Honky Tonk Woman is a real show stopper and got the audience crying for more.

how the hell can anyone not know what a shn file is in the year 2009? if you're worried about getting your 5 minutes back that it took you to figure shn out how do you think we feel having to read your assinine stock responce to the various nice nrps shows.

Decent sounding show, but track list is TOTALLY wrong
This show's worth downloading, but because the tracklist is so different, I wouldn't bet good money it was from the '71 Felt Forum show. Because of the uncertainty of the show's origins, I can't give it more than 3 stars. It's NRPS, but it's a bit heavy on the bass, and, well, who the hell knows when and where it's really from?
Here's the CORRECT track listing:
1 - Bill Graham intro
2 - Six Days on the Road
3 - Rainbow
4 - Fair Chance to Know
5 - I Don't Know You
6 - Lochnivar
7 - Down in the Boondocks
8 - Truck Drivin' Man
9 - Dirty Business
11- California Day
12- Louisiana Lady
13- The Last Lonely Eagle
14- Willie and the Hand Jive
15- Honky Tonk Women
16- Glendale Train

The New Riders of the Purple Sage "Live On Stage" December 5, 1971, at the Felt Forum, MSG, NYC, NY, U.S.A.
Hey man these shn files take too long to download, It's like takin forever to do this whole show, wassup witdat? How about puttin' this show up on the IA using VBR MU3 files? They are good enough for the GRATEFUL DEAD they should be good enough for the NRPS...huh? can ya? can ya? huh? Please....pretty please?
Uh, If you are using Windows XP the following is for you:::
....Holy Smokes...shn files? what? uh...if you are like me and don't know what this crap is, go here and download the converter:
It's easy to convert the shn files to Wave Sound files, just drag and drop them in the Mkw Audio Compression Tool application window and it converts the files automatically. Then you can open the files in Windows Media Player...make a playlist, etc..
You might want to keep your shn files, since they are lossless files from what I am able to decipher in the last 5 minutes I spent out of my life trying to figure out what the heck shn files are...damn audiophiles always chasing the "perfect format" for recording.
Okay now to the music...well, if you made it to this page, do I have to tell you it's great? Nope.
I remember seeing the Riders several times in the early 70's with the GRATEFUL DEAD, and their free concert(s) in Central Park in Manhattan, NYC.
Thanks for the Love.
